Monthly Archive v4.0.0 released

A new version of Monthly Archive has been released.

+ Added   ! Removed   ^ Changed   # Fixed

20-Apr-2017 : v4.0.0 + 29 new useful parameters have been added. + More than 40 parameters have been improved. + *"Content-Type" parameter. You can now display directly the list of Articles instead of displaying the list of Months and Years like the previous version did. + Check first if a third party extension is active (installed or enabled), and then retrieve content from there, without displaying any errors. + *STATE: You can choose a different type of article state to be displayed. You can either show all articles, the featured articles, the non-featured articles or both. The published or unpublished articles, the trashed articles, and of course the archived articles (from Joomla core functionality). + *Custom Page Title and Welcome Message are now welcome. Another useful feature to set your custom texts for the page title and the welcome message for each content type (months/years list or list of articles) separately. Also, you can hide the page title or the welcome message, again in each content-type separately. + *Include/Exclude content. Another great feature is to display any content you want to be displayed. You can choose which content items to include or exclude from your Archive, specific years, months, categories, authors, and articles. In the new version, the parameters are now displayed as a new separate tab in the component parameters. + *UIkit Front-end framework: The layout has been improved spectacularly. It is based on the fantastic UIkit framework of Yootheme team. The UIkit is a lightweight and modular front-end framework for developing fast and powerful web interfaces. + *SEARCH FORM: Choose the input form fields that will be displayed in the search form. Select those that are useful for your Users. You can show the date select field, the order select field, the author's select form field, and the search input text. Also, you can show/hide each form field in each content-type separately. + LAYOUT & NEW PARAMETERS: There are multiple new useful parameters to customize the layout for each content type separately, the list of months/years and the list of articles. For example, you can choose if you want to display the years in an accordion style. You can select the ordering of years, most recent years first, or oldest years first. To avoid big lists, you can set your own limits (e.g. display only the three most recent years and their months). + *IMAGES: We add more powerful parameters for images. You can show or hide the image. You can choose if your image will be displayed with a link or not. You can choose the image type (the intro image, the full, the auto-detect from the content item or the blank image). Finally, you can set your preferred image dimensions (width and height). + *COMMENTS: This is a feature of a previous version but the functionality has been improved and optimized. + *MODULE: The module has also been re-written from scratch with bug fixes, speed optimizations, and new features just as the component has. ^ The language files have been changed. Some strings have been deleted and some others have been added. # Minor issues with previous parameter fields have been resolved. # Most of the bug fixes and security issues have been resolved. # CSS and Javascript issues have been resolved.
